michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st
gap that's there was widened by the great display put on by some of the speakers, from michelle obama to ledbetter. they were all substantive. i don't see it the way charles season. i know where those glasses. >> i caught up with mark shields on the hot, crowded streets of charlotte. >> democrats have to make a choice. if it is a referendum on whether barack obama has done a good job, they are in trouble. >> what are you going to do for us for the next four years? did we get any answer to that? >> i was absolutely stunned. that was one of the andes speeches i've ever heard on a national stage. -- emptiest speeches i've ever heard on the national stage. incidentally, if he is so proud of his record, his three great legislative attempts -- obamacare, a stimulus, cap-and- trade -- no mention whatsoever in the speech. he cannot speak about his past, his own agenda, and when he talked about the future, he pulled numbers out of had. 100,000 new teachers, 600,000 people working and natural gas, 2 million people on retraining. these are numbers invented. he did not explain once. he did not sa
la noche de bill clinton, anoche fue la de la primera dama michelle obama quien se dirigio a los presentes en la convencion nacional democrata. hablo sobre su esposo no solo como presidente sino tambien como un padre y hombre responsable. jaime zea nos resume su mensje. sot-michelle obama (being president doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are) con estas palabras michelle obama hizo algo similar a lo que ann romney hizo hace una semana en tampa . pero muchos de los asistentes coinciden en que su discurso fue mas emotivo sot-attendee we already know obama el exgobernador del estado de nuevo mexico bill richardson quien no se perdio un minuto del discurso, nos dijo que la primera dama era mas que la esposa del presidente sot-richardson michelle obama as a powerful weapon esta manana michelle obama aprovecho un evento del cabildo hispano del partido democrata para prometer apoyo a la comunidad latina sot-michelle obama los republicanos sin embargo no estan muy convencidos ni con el presidente ni con la primera dama sot-republican rebuttle ..no se vaya que en unos insta
of the speakers, from michelle obama to ledbetter. they were all substantive -- obviously, i don't see the way charles sees it. >> i caught up with mark shields on the hot, crowded streets of charlotte, and his take on the challenges facing the president. to make a choice. if ideas are referendum on whether barack obama has done a good job, -- if it is is a referendum on whether problem has been a good job, they are in trouble. >> if we rehire you, do we get an answer to that? >> i was stunned. that was one of the emptiest speeches i've ever heard on a national stage. he not only did not talk about the past. if he is so proud of his record, his three great legislative attempts -- obamacare, stimulus, cap-and-trade -- no mention whatsoever in his speech. he cannot speak about the past, he cannot speak about his own agenda, which liberals like but the country doesn't, and any part about the future, he pulled the numbers out of at. 600,000 new people working on natural gas, 2 million people on a retraining. these are numbers invented. he did not explain once. he is the party of government. he did
, tonight, and michelle obama, what is the big test for michelle obama? we know she's practiced, she's a practiced speaker, she's been on the national stage, unlike ann romney, who hit it out of the park with her first effort, really, using teleprompters and all the attention. what is the tactical political effect of michelle obama? >> i think michelle made her debut four years ago in what was an off the chart speech. i think she, because of her closeness obviously with the president and her viewpoint, she can really tell the story of his values, his upbringing, what he believes, and what he wants to do yet for this country. i think she is going to be a powerful and passionate advocate for the president tonight and will give a great speech. >> unlike mitt romney, who needed to have the biography filled in and ann romney was trying to explain just who is this man who has been described variously as robotic and not warm and cuddly to the outside world, at least, president obama has a very high popularity quotient but his big gap is on answering the republican bumper stickers, which is

's speakers, building on the momentum of last night. how can you top michelle obama? >> believe it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bill was actually higher than our mortgage. yeah. we were so young, so in love, and so in debt. and that's why barack has fought so hard to increase student aid and keep interest rates down. because he wants every young person to fulfill their promise and be able to attend college without a mountain of debt. so in the end, for barack, these issues aren't political. they're personal. because barack knows what it means when a family struggles. he knows what it means to want something more for your kids and grandkids. barack knows the american dream because he's lived it. and he wants everyone in this country, everyone, to have the same opportunity. he reminds me that we are playing a long game here. and that change is hard. and change is slow. and it never happens all at once. but eventually, we get there. we always do. we get there because of folks like my dad. folks like barack's grandmother. men and women who said to them
that warrants hours, hours of television talk time. thanks for your time, sir. >>> coming up, michelle obama, ann romney and american women. as the first lady prepares to address the dnc tonight, will she, like mrs. romney, have a specific message for women? in her 2008 speech, she praised the efforts of one woman in particular. >> i stand here today at the cross currents of that history, knowing that my piece of the american dream is a blessing hard won by those who came before me. people like hillary clinton. who put those 18 million cracks in that glass ceiling so that our daughters and our sons can dream a little bigger and aim a little higher. >> we will discuss all the single ladies, all the married ladies, all the american ladies next on "now." we know a place where tossing and turning have given way to sleeping. where sleepless nights yield to restful sleep. and lunesta can help you get there, like it has for so many people before. when taking lunesta, don't drive or operate machinery until you feel fully awake. walking, eating, driving, or engaging in other activities while asleep,
, tonight is michelle obama's turn. she's not going to have to work as hard to convince folks that president obama is likable. take a look at this recent poll. this is a "washington post" poll. 61% of registered voters say that the president seems more friendly and likable compared to 27% for romney. we're going to have more ahead, what we can expect from the first lady. >>> also coming up, the spotlight tonight on a rising star in the democratic party. we're talking about san antonio julian castro following in the footsteps of bill clinton and barack obama, hoping he'll appeal to the growing latino population. here's a look at the man and the mission that he's facing. >> it's been my pleasure to serve as mayor. >> reporter: meet julian castro, popular latino mayor of san antonio, texas, and a darling of the democratic base who will deliver the keynote speech at the national convention in charlotte. democrats have a long tradition of rolling out the party's rising stars for such an honor. >> the keynote speech is to set the tone for the entire convention. >> we will have a new president of t

the difference you make in people's lives. >> all right. that was michelle obama last night and we were watching it together and one of the things we were joking about is that she raised the bar when it came to the guns, right? we all -- and we are all going sleeveless now and we have to work on the biceps. >> and seriously, people were talking about that as well, and it is blowing up on twitter. in all seriousness, we did see michelle obama who is comfortable in her own skin and seemed like she was relaxed and really delivered a personal message. and dana, this seems like it is first lady who is growing, and who is evolving here h, a, and don't see hillary clinton, but michelle obama bringing in the women here. >> yes, and you heard her appeal to the women as overtly as ann romney did, because they don't have the gap that the republicans do, but it was fascinating of the way she felt she had to reintroduce the country to the person barack obama, and talking about his rusty old car and the way he asked her out on the date and of course, the kind of father he is. and of course, for the political
. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. joining us now in our coverage all of this week, anderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our new poll shows why that case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. new numbers on mitt romney's convention bounds. john, what are the numbers? >> anderson, as the democrats open their convention tonight, let's look at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy, and the woman who stood by his side, vicki kennedy. >> meanwhile, the floor plan is completely different from the republican convention in tampa. sinc
-election, with their convention set to be gaveled to order in just one hour. first lady michele obama caps the opening night with a speech that will talk about the president's connection with and support for the middle class. a theme that the president himself anticipated earlier today at a rally in norfolk, virginia, where he drew a sharp contrast with his republican rival, mitt romney. >> i mean, think about it. a plan that says we're going to make middle-class families pay for another budget-busting, $250,000 tax cut, for people making $3 million a year or more, that's not really persuasive to most people. >> while the president was delivering that line, mitt romney's been up in vermont this afternoon, working on his powers of persuasion, fine tuning his debate preparations and leaving hatchet man paul ryan to do the dirty work on the campaign trail as today in battleground ohio. >> the biggest threat to medicare is obama care and one of the biggest threats to job creation is obama care. so for the sake of medicare, and for the sake of jobs, we are going to repeal and replace obama care. >> what a line.
clinton and michelle obama far more than over the appearances by mitt and ann romney? >> the first lady of the united states not hitting a home run, but probably a grand slam. as far as what her mission was to do -- >> the master, bill clinton, delivered a masterpiece of a speech. truly a wonder. a rousing call to re-elect president obama. >> an electrifying endorsement of president obama from the former president -- >> a performance was amazing in the room, amazing on tv. >> reviews of president obama's speech not quite so positive. plus, some journalists are openly complaining, okay, maybe whining a bit, about the joyless and overly choreographed nature of this campaign. do they have a point? i'm howard kurtz, and this is "reliable sources." >>> it's rare in these days of polarized politics that most pundits agree on anything. when the democratic convention kicked off this week, there was plenty of praise for the soft-spoken and highly personal speech by michelle obama. >> michelle obama owned this convention, the delegates. >> i think that we may have forgotten how good michelle obam
antonio, texas, as well as the first lady, michelle obama. >> this is a loud, loud arena. so hopefully, you can hear us better. >> i can name that tune in four notes. bill hemmer and markety mccould youan are on the floor. >> reporter: good evening. this arena is electric. the acoustics are outstanding. >> the biggest applause line so far, followed a video tribute for the late senator kennedy from massachusetts. after that, a number of references -- [inaudible], a direct reference to the 18 electoral votes in ohio. the obama team believes that 1 in 18 voters in ohio are connect to the automobile industry. i asked about the michelleobama speech and i was told it was outstanding. ann romney was speaking this night last week in tampa. expect the same tonight from the first lady. >> thank you very much. behind me, governor o'malley is speaking. let's check in. >> we will check in with market a. what do you see on the floor there? >> reporter: lots of enthusiasm. everybody excited for michelle obama's speech down here. the campaign says that her primary task will be to speak as her husband'
hualien castro and first lady michelle obama. no secret that the obama campaign is trying to win over hispanics and women. now, they do have a big lead with both, but will need to hold or build on it for november. and before either speaker takes the stage, the president will be campaigning in norfolk, virginia today. a state that just happens to be 54% women. let me write in roll call politics reporter and political editor. welcome to both of you. so michelle obama. i think her job is maybe uniquely complicated. she's very well liked. viewed favorably by almost seven in ten americans. but he's well liked, too. you can love someone and, i don't know, still not want to live with them? can you think barack obama is a great guy but maybe he hasn't shown you that he can solve the country's problems? what is michelle obama's job tonight? >> it's to simply humanize her husband and build on the high like ability score for him. the first lady has appalachin a rating of nine points higher than her husband. so her job hands down is to just make him seem like a family man. >> doesn't he already h
. >> michelle obama delivered a rousing call for a second term as the president and first daughters looked on from the white house. we have a live report from charlotte, north carolina, minutes away. >> and apple hacked? a group claimed it stole users' information. what you need to know. >> and our own holly morris is spending the day with dr. oz. he's in d.c. to give us a checkup. as fox 5 morning news at 7 starts right now. >>> good morning to you. there is a live look outside and not a bad looking start to the day. it's wednesday, september 5th, 2012. i'm tony parkins. >> i'm allison seymour. happy you're with us today. showing you another live picture from the howard university college of medicine where, in just a short time now, a thousand d.c. residents will be getting free physicals thanks to dr. oz. won't to point out, though, if you're checking in and seeing this, all of today's participants are registered. they had to preregister so the physicals will only be given to those who are signed up. >> and that is a good thing. >> a good thing. >> and won't to go to tucker barnes who ha
to white working class voters. >> thank you. the consensus is pretty much clear. first lady michelle obama delivered a stellar speech. show you. "the washington post" writes michelle obama's speech politically masterful. politico.com asked what many people are wondering. what if michelle ran for office. the "huffington post" laid it out with this headline. simply said, top that, barack. let me bring in allison samuels, syndicated radio talk show host, michael smerconish and chip saltsman, republican strategist and former huckabee campaign manager. allison, you've written this book about michelle obama, what would michelle do. last night she the did perhaps what many expected but took it to a whole other level. >> what would michelle do? she would look fabulous doing whatever she does. that's what she did in her speech. she reminded people who her husband really is and that he hadn't changed from that community activist that started in chicago who has a genuine concern for people's well-being. what she showed is she still had the confidence in him to make sure the country gets where he need
in with michele obama, a portion of michele obama's speech, what did you think of it? >> it was a great speech, it really was. so many personal anecdotes you could visualize. we were talking last week about how ann romney said a lot of great things about mitt romney but never gave you the visuals. john said it best. who in america are in that convention hall -- or in that convention hall watching the speech didn't get the image of a loving father struck with ms, seeing his two children sat the top of the stairs and fighting and struggling to get up those stairs to hug his children at the end of the day or fighting and struggling to get out of bad to go to work to give them a slice of the american dream. it was an absolutely fantastic speech. and the great line, absolutely loved the line, that being president doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are. >> very personal, very revealing but it also might have accomplished something in terms of touching on some key areas that might have needed some work, not that the president, you would think, had a problem with the women's vote. >> right
. the early nights were very strong. there was -- michelle obamaways -- michelle obama's speech went out well in the hall and outside as well. president obama was nolt quite the president obama that many thought he might be. the rhetoric was not soaring. but in many ways, the speech was similar to what he did in 2008. it talked about what he wants to do in the future. but most it was i want to frame this choice in a way that's most helpful to me and most damaging to governor romney. and i think that while the speech didn't get great reviews, the people i talked to today about it think that he did what he needed to do in terms of reaching specific audiences with specific messages. gwen: i went through the speech while he was delivering it last night, peter, and counted i think 19 times he used that formulation "choice" or "choose." he likes that, doesn't he? >> it's become the mantra of this year. and looking at this speech versus the one four years ago when he used the word "promise" 40 times and this this is -- that was the time of promise this is a franchise and a choice of two as he sees i

-- here is a picture of the president and his daughters watching michelle obama from the white house last night. you can see the tweet that his campaign sent out last night. next call comes from michigan, independent line. caller: i think they should be the first ladies, supportive from the outside. i really don't feel that this buildup is necessary. just bring out the president and let him give his pitch and let's get on with the show. some of the stuff that she said makes no sense to me. with all the dinners and he is a way so much, i would have liked to of heard from melia and sasha and their impressions of their dead. how their time in washington has been as compared to chicago and how they are getting along in school and if they're looking forward to a second term. she looked very pretty and she is made up and she is dressed but do we need this? host: on your screen is a live picture of the inside of the time warner cable arena in charlotte at the democratic national convention and it convenes again tonight at 5:00 p.m. bill clinton will be the closer tonight to deliver the nominati
